- Bowen Crescent will re-open at 4pm today
- Water barriers will be installed in a staggered formation in your slip lane at 4pm to allow access to the Botanica driveway. Traffic controllers will be in place to assist residents
- At the same time – Bowen Lane access to the Botanica Driveway will open. (At this point in time access and egress will be available in both directions)
- A Traffic Controller will remain in the slip lane access road until 7pm tonight to assist residents who are returning home.
- At 7pm the Traffic Controller will finish up, however the water barriers will remain open for anyone returning later at night.
- The barriers will be closed off during the night and when residents leave in the morning they will leave via Bowen Lane.
If you park in the lower car park then be extra careful coming home tonight.
CYP have started the change that means you cannot get to your driveway from Bowen Cres or St Kilda Rd. Tonight you may be able to squeeze through but certainly tomorrow you’ll have to go in and out via Bowen Lane
It will be a big problem until they have Albert Rd access again – planned for Friday Dec 7. To go towards the city on Kings Way, you will have to do the big loop – Bowen Lane / Kings Way, Bowen Cres, St Kilda Rd, Albert Rd
Sorry for the lack of warning – it was in a notice some weeks back but I thought the dates had moved like all other dates.
The bods from CYP have started work on the guide wall that will be used to build the diaphragm wall. This section is on the eastern edge of the southern box
Oh yeah – the pictures above, they are some of the local office workers who are really enjoying the fact that the service lane is closed. They get some afternoon exercise.
There will be a note with more detail in your letterboxes but the lower car park will be closed on Wed 28th and Saturday 1st from 7:30 am – 5 pm on each day
Call the 1800 number if it causes you problems
We have had issues with cockies eating part of the building facade for some years. The good news is that we have a solution but the installation will not start until mid-January.
In the meantime, a part of the facade (cosmetic only) was in danger of falling. So we had a couple of guys (professional abseilers from Skyhooks) carefully remove it for us. For those of you not in Melbourne, it is wet and cold here today
Here is the damage
Here is the location
Here are some of the boys at work
Here is a timelapse of the activity out the front today. Lots of holes, dug filled and dirt moved
We’ve been having issues with tram squeal in St Kilda Rd for 6-7 months and just when I thought that Yarra Trams had tried everything…I spotted this today
Capacity is down a bit and no squeal BUT I’m not sure I like the strange clip clop sound!!
Actually they’ve done a great job by using the special friction modifier goo.
The squeal from the trams has returned!! As I understand it, Yarra Trams have identified the problem and are working on a remedy
